Cross-Exchange Visit : How to foster peer to peer exchange in viticulture ?

On 30th of June 2020, French Institute of Wine (IFV) held a Cross-Exchange Visit online. 10 participants attended to this meeting, from 3 countries and from 9 H2020 projects.

They presented their experiences of CEV. Their conclusion are we must adapt our speech to the public. To transmit technical information, it can be more interesting to have an intermediary: the advisor. Indeed, advisors will change the technical speech in practical speech for farmers.

Their recommendations are to focus on a clear topic to talk about on practical subject as much as possible. The peer-to-peer learning is a method approved, but it is important to introduce experts in the discussion to bring technical and innovative information. To avoid difficulties of the organisation of a CEV, the solution may be the virtual meetings, an idea reinforced by the Covid-19 crisis. Indeed, it is possible to gather more people on a platform, without the travel organisation. However, it is a necessity to change the format, using digital tools.

Two sessions of exercise have been held on Mural. The first was untitled “Best tools for fostering peer-to-peer exchange of knowledge”. The participants should link three different categories:

  • Tools
  • Targets
  • Type of information

The second session was about the “topics for future CEV or Thematic Network” in viticulture. 4 priorities were putting in evidence:

  • The vineyard soil
  • The adaptation to climate change
  • The innovative methods to control grapevine diseases
  • The organic viticulture

The Cross-Visit was closed with the presentation of Euraknos Explorer’s Guide.
